24 Hours Of Horror With Edgar Wright

Link: 24 Hours Of Horror With Edgar Wright

Now this is a heck of a marathon.

This weekend was the annual Horrorthon here in Dublin which seems to have lost some of its momentum in the past few yeard. A lot of its programme had me scratching my head and thinking “Is that really a horror film?” (e.g. Play Misty for Me or Akira). As a result, I’ve found myself weighing up the films I’d actually be interested in seeing and the films I couldn’t be bothered with and decided that – guest appearance by Michael Biehn not withstanding – it just wasn’t worth my time.

Edgar Wright’s list might be a bit obvious in places, but I’d be first in line at that marathon.
